Question ERAS CV length and how many lines for work description

Hi,
My ERAS CV seems really long and I was wondering if others have CVs that are so long too?
Considering normally advice for writing CVs is to keep it 1-2 pages.
My ERAS CV is around 8 pages! the majority of this is the experience section, as i was told by ECFMG to add all my clerkships.
How long a description do people write for each experience? i.e. how many words/lines? and how long are your CVs?
